We already did a couple of optimizations with our latest update
regarding download of metadata.

AFAIK exactly these issues are not addressed as such. I'm always
amazed how critical some bugs are once they're found - but how long it
takes to find them and how long it takes to report them in bugzilla (I
only found bug 200071 reporting this - and that's 4 days old).

We addressed another issue - the downloading of packages. So, instead
of downloading 100 MB of packages, you might need to download only a
few MB,
